Strauss: I'm sorry, I just don't have the patience for this. He's clearly hiding something.
Morgan: All due respect, ma'am, have you been drinking?
Strauss: What? What are you talking about?
Morgan: Strauss we have one shot at this.
Strauss: You think I don't know that?
Morgan: Well if he smelled what I smell on your breath right now, the credibility of this investigation would be compromised.

Dr. Reid: A man like Massey sets rules but is the first to break them. He's left alone to run this kids lives but nobody questions him.
Garcia: Man, it sounds so sad and scary when you put it like that.
Reid: His policies are a combination of many other philosophies but I'm not sure where his actual leadership lies.
Garcia: I believe that it does. Lie, that is. It's a joke.
Reid: Oh, good joke.

Agent Rossi: Nothing was nice about that kid, it's like he strong-armed everybody.
Garcia: Well then the points are for bad behavior, only they're not calling it that.
Agent Prentiss: We should look at the points of everyone who died in those woods. My guess is they were all bullies.
Dr. Reid: Except for Josh.

Dr. Reid: You'd think the laundry room would be closer to the dorms.
Garcia: It's not in the basement?
Reid: It's on the opposite side of campus, that's so strange.
Garcia: Yeah.
Agent Rossi: Leaves of three, let them be.
Garcia: Oh man, poison ivy, alcohol swab stat.
Agent Prentiss: You know if I've got it, so do you.
Rossi: I'm Italian, it knows better.

Agent Morgan: These kids are told what to say, what to wear and when to eat. This goes against the very nature of these boys. They're all looking for some type of control in their lives, and this place strips them of that.
Erin Strauss: And suicide is the ultimate power?
Morgan: Isn't it?

Dr. Reid: What drove them to suicide?
Strauss: A freshman cadet, Bailey Shelton, hung himself two weeks ago in his room.
Agent Hotchner: Identical bedsheet, hangman's knot.
Agent Rossi: Who takes bedsheets camping?
JJ: They would if it was the plan. Could be a domino effect.
Rossi: Campus would've been on high alert after the first one, so the kids wait until they're alone in the woods.
Morgan: They must've made some kind of pact.
Hotch: And there's something else. Six kids went on the trip, only five were found.

Rossi: He's not ready to let go of the bond he had with Hope.
Reid: And now he's trying to get back what was taken from him.
Prentiss: Wouldn't it just be easier for him to just start over?
Rossi: Unless Monica could give him what he lost - another Hope. He didn't take Monica to remind him of Hope. He took her to recreate her.

Prentiss: These were found on Heather Wilson's bike two weeks after Hope disappeared.
Garcia: That's the girl Hope was playing with when she was abducted.
Prentiss: Yeah.
Rossi: The butterfly again.
JJ: "Without you she wouldn't have been set free. This is a token of my appreciation?"
Garcia: He sent a thank you card to the girl he didn't abduct?

Hotch: Monica's not a preference, she's his specific target.
Rossi: He didn't go after just anyone, he went after Hope's mother.
Hotch: Which means that Hope is probably dead and he's taking Monica because she reminds him of Hope.

Reid: So this letter Monica allegedly received from her daughter contains no indication of female authorship. It lacks expression of emotional attachment.
Hotch: The UnSub wrote it?
Reid: I believe so. The language used is inconsistent with that of a 15-year-old held in captivity the past seven years.

Agent Morgan: There was no sign of struggle at the scene.
Agent Prentiss: What if she went willingly? He could've approached her and had Hope with him.
Agent Rossi: That would certainly get her attention.
Dr. Reid: Still it's pretty high risk to abduct in such a high traffic area. The parking lot was right next to a strip mall.
Rossi: Any witnesses?
Garcia: I was the last person that saw her.

Dr. Reid: It's Frankenstein.
Morgan: What?
Reid: The UnSub isn't just trying to put his brother back together, he's trying to bring him back from the dead. He believes that tornadoes have the power to take lives, so conversely they should have the power to restore it.
Hotch: We'll pick up Rossi and Prentiss on the way. Let's go.

Criminal Minds Season 7 Quotes

Agent Rossi: Have you ever been in the field?
Senator Cramer: I have, but I'm not the one on trial here.
Rossi: Then maybe you can imagine what it was like to find Emily Prentiss dying at the hands of Ian Doyle. Now ask yourself, was it wrong for him to want to take him out?

Garcia: This would've been a heck of a lot easier had he gone digital.
Morgan: Garcia there's an art to this. This guy was meticulous, definitely a control freak.
Garcia: Yeah, he's dead. He couldn't control that.
